UA’s Department of Mechanical Engineering offers dynamic programs for students interested in all facets of mechanical engineering from automotive to aerospace and manufacturing to robotics.
Mechanical engineers pursue careers in the automotive, aerospace, chemical, computer, communication, defense, energy, railroad and robotics industries, just to name a few. Mechanical engineers are also found in almost all manufacturing industries. Increasingly, mechanical engineers are needed in the environmental and bio-medical fields, and many of our graduates have pursued education in medicine and law. Without a doubt, virtually every product or service in modern life has probably been touched in some way by a mechanical engineer.
See the Accelerated Master’s Program designed specifically for outstanding students to complete the requirements for both their bachelor’s degree and a master of science in mechanical engineering in an accelerated five year period.
The University of Alabama’s bachelor of science in mechanical engineering program is designed to specifically allow students maximum flexibility to select courses that will benefit them the most in support of their own career aspirations.
This B.S. program will provide graduates the skills and knowledge for successful careers in manufacturing systems and processes with practical applications ranging from manufacturing processes to cyber-physical systems.
The Manufacturing minor is intended to provide our current undergraduates the skills and knowledge for successful careers in manufacturing systems and processes, and their practical applications ranging from manufacturing processes to other industries such as robotics, automotive and aerospace.
